    I always think it's too bad when someone leaves a conflict early, never to return. Missed opportunity. /<blah blah blah>
    I agree. I don't always like conflict (gulp) but I work at not running from it when I get the opportunity .

    Conflict. It's a great learning experience if the other guy isn't an asshole.

    To be honest, I think a lot of the drama llamas are gone now. This all seems to be low-level friction, much of the time. We used to have a few personalities that would cause extremely large disruptions on a regular basis.

    Agreed. I guess it's the staff task to separate the normal crowd (which will sometimes step on toes) from the true a-holes.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Drama Llama. Funny.

    Yeah, I was thinking about how subjective the take on whether someone is an asshole can be too, on and off here. I can laugh off a comment from one person and cry like a two year old at someone else saying the same thing.

    Actually, it's easier if they are an asshole sometimes. If you like them they have easy access.

    .
    Isn't this one of the worst things a moderator can ever say? Similar to, "No the rain is slowing down, I'm sure we can walk to the car, without getting too wet." A downpour then comes as they halfway reach the car.

    Smile The Drama Llama and the Dramaturge

    I guess I think the psychodrama of the drama llamas can be approached in two ways.

    The first is to take it at face value and respond immediately. The second is to look behind the psychodrama to see what is behind.

    Most of us don't know our real feelings and so we can't express them directly, but they are pressing to get out, so we start a psychodrama to express them indirectly.

    So we need not only drama llamas but also dramaturges to interpret the psychodramas.

    LOL!

    Or we can use drama llamas to express psychodramas indirectly!

    Smile Specialising in particular feelings.

    This is precisely what we do. And even more important, some specialise is some feelings which they express on behalf of all of us.

    In other words, some are good at some feelings and some are good at others. So you can express the feelings I am not so good at, and I can express the feelings that you haven't mastered yet. And of course this goes for the indirect expression of feelings in psychodrama.

    This is the great advantage of the electronic tribe we belong to. We can help one another with our feelings. Some are good at this feeling and some are good at that, but together we become deeper, richer and more emotionally powerful.
